Watch Manuel engaging his audience


  • “Always eat breakfast, never skip meals, eat well-balanced meals….we hear all of these things but Manuel’s presentation actually made sense of the science behind these practical health rules. I walked away feeling like being healthy wasn’t as hard as I have always made it out to be. Scheduling time for friends and work is something I have always made a priority, so now adding in a few hours a week to schedule time for my health seems easy enough. Thanks Manuel!”

  • “While planning the presentations for our Annual Statewide Women Infants and Children Conference, we heard about Manuel and his nutrition communications. The buzz after his first presentation was so strong that the staff was crowding out of the doorway to hear his second. Manuel captivated the audience with his knowledge, engaging style, and cutting-edge visual material”

    California Women Infant and Children Association

  • “Manuel has been my nutritionist for some time and after a successful effort of addressing my individual needs and goals, I thought it would be beneficial for our staff to receive a presentation from Manuel in person. Manuel's presentation was professional, informative and easy to follow. We are an informal group by nature, and Manuel had an ease to him that made this an effective group presentation. Following the presentation, there were individual one-on-one meetings where attendees could ask personal and sensitive questions. The feedback I received in the days following was unanimous: everyone benefited from the time with Manuel. Would I do it again? Yes. Would our staff do it again? Absolutely!”
